Bridging the Gap with Nicholas Yee

Saturday 6:00 - 8:00pm on HPR-2

Nick Yee’s live sets as dj mr.nick earned him a reputation for being able to start in one genre and seamlessly slide into another, moving across musical and cultural boundaries.  Bossa Nova, Latin Jazz, Downtempo, Neo-Soul, and Rare-Groove will take listeners from The Brazilian Experience, through an eclectic assortment of styles and then bridge the musical/age gap into a jazz atmosphere compatible with Seth Markow’s The Real Deal.

His mixes and live sets can be found on his Mixcloud or Soundcloud

Tonight on Bridging the Gap-We're loosely exploring the roots of soul.  We're breaking the show up in two.  In the 1st hour, we'll explore the roots of Portuguese colonization with a little latin and African in the mix, then in the second hour, we'll explore American soul from old to new.
